It was edited by Krishna Raj for more than three decades. The present editor is C.Rammanohar Reddy.

EPW is published by the Sameeksha Trust, a registered charitable trust.

EPW is known to take strong editorial positions and forthright stances on current affairs and its pages have for decades been open to writers who have highlighted the challenges facing the disadvantaged. It is known as a publication with a "social conscience". Some have even called it independent India's consciencecite web | url=,12559,1149681,00.html | title=Krishna Raj | work=The Guardian] . The EPW's biggest influence on social sciences in India has been in catalysing debates and disseminating research output.

Analysis of current affairs and research papers, published every week, is only one aspect of EPW's publication programme. It produces a "Review" of focus issues six to eight times a year, each dealing with one of the following subject areas: Agriculture, Industry and Management, Women's Studies, Science Policy and Labour.

In more recent years, EPW has also been publishing a number of "Special Issues", dealing with a diversity of subjects of contemporary policy interest. They have included, for example, an annual publication on Money, Banking and Finance.
